GRAIN AND PRODUCE MARKET
Liverpool Wheat Market Swamped
il JiV. nee--!
. VU1LII 111 ITI
MANY REPORTS ARE MISLEADING
Condition Snrrotindlna; Corn Said to
ne Quite Unfavorable to Hold
er ot the Ornln Stock
OMAHA, Neb., Feb. !4, 1914.
The Liverpool wheat market was id
lower yesterday with the larger world's
shipments nnd the lack of cash demand
the principal bearish factors, according
to a special cable. It will take good buy
ing of grain In that market to absorb the
Increased offerings from Australia as well
as Russia, together with that from other
countries and according to the. latest
cable advices the demand there Is any
thing hut good. It Is said by some that
a great deal ot wheat that is to go to
importing countries is wheat that was
rold some time ago, and which is now
being placed on the ocoan for shipment to
its destination. It was some time ago
that Russia was inclined to hold Its
wheat, being backed by the government
in a financial way, but the growers there
aro now offering their grain upon tho
market ot the world, and offerings aro
likely to bo felt In tho matter of price
Many reports coming to tho Chicago
markets from abroad aro very mislead
ing. As an Illustration, It Is only neces
sary to Point to the calamitous talk re
ceived at various times from Australia
Tho crop has been reduced there so many
times by people who wcro recognized ns
Experts and it has been said that the
nurplus in that country has been gobbled
up by Importers, Including Japan, that it
was' generally believed there would be
no wheat sent out of that country. It
now transpires, however, that Australia is
to become a liberal shipper again, as
noted In the shipments ot this week.
Argentina is not likely to develop as
even a moderate shipper of breadstuff,
although it is said that low grade wheat
in that country Is being otrerca lor snic,
while tho best descriptions nro being
held for millers thero and for which
higher prices are being asked.
, The strength shown In tho Winnipeg
wheat market yesterday whs probably
the result of export takings there, as It
was that export Interests were buyers ot
May futures, and that this was a reflec
tion of business In the cash article. Dur
ing several days of last week James
Carruthers & Co. afnd Norrls & Co., as
well os two other exporting concerns,
woro reported as buyers of May wheat
in Winnipeg, and this it was claimed was
h gainst sales for shlpmont abroad.
Those who believe that wheat Is high
enough for tho present point to tho al
most perfect crop conditions in tho United
States, as well as to the good-sized vis
ible supply, coapled with lack of demanu
on cash account. They also referred to
the lack ot business In the flour markets
Of tho entire world and to the cutting of
prices by tho larger millers ot the wejt
to prevent the accumulation ot stocks
ot flour and to being forced to accept
much lower prices in case the winter
wheat belt escapes a crop scare.
Cash wheat was unchanged.
Conditions surrounding corn have been
quite unfavorable to holders for somo
time paBt, and whilo tho cash business
has failed to develop and tho stocks are
large. In Chicago, as well as In tho visible
supply, new friends have come to the
front. The bulls have accumulated fair
sized lines of late and it looks now as it
they Intend to stand on them until such
a time as thero Is a crop available.
Cash corn was He higher to o lower.
Oats aro likely to follow the price
changes in corn, and It has been noticed
the last few days that there was a llttlo
more strength to this market, and this,
too. In tho face of onlya moderate busi
ness In tho cash article, but this was par
tially .balanced by the smaller receipts at
'Cash oats were unchanged to Uo lower.
Clearances of wheat and flour wcro
293.000 bu.; corn, none; oats, 10,000 bu.
At Liverpool wheat closed unchanged to
MA lower: corn, HV4d lower.
Primary receipts of wheat were L&4,000

Price on Hoard of Trade.
CHICAGO, Feb. 24. Rumors of export
sales had considerable to do today with
rallying the price of wheat. Largely in
consequence, tho market, which early In
the sosslon had been depressed, closed
steady, at an advance of 4 to W,4c net.
Corn finished with a gain of HO Vic, and
oats un 'StffHc. For provisions tho out

deciino to an upturn of 71ic
According to ono author tv. export sales
by Chicago houses have been mado
steadily somo soles by way of tho gult
and some from here to the Atlantic sea
board. There seemed to be no doubt that
a little hard winter wheat at southwestern
points was disposed of to foreigners, but
in general dispatches from the east it was
asserted that European bids were clearly
out ot line. Help, however, came from an
unexpectedly largo decrease In the visible
supply total, and from Kansas and Ne
braska reports that Ico in many fields
threatened to smother fall sown grain.
Ampie snow protection for most of tho
winter crop was the chief reason why the
wheat market duo the first unrt of the
day could not escape from bearish control.
cable news also had been disappointing
to tno nuns, especially a nuge enlarge
ment of tho amount of wheat on ocean
Corn turned upward In response to west
ern reports of r good call from feeders.
a nig elevator concern hero which has
been short for months, went over to tho
buying side. Tho fatlure of tho visible
supply to Increase was an elemont of
strength. Firmness, though, did not do
velop until after a sag due to tho piling up
of receipts hero In the last three days.
The oats trade was on a modest scale.
I'rices were governed mainly by tho
course of other grain.
Lard proved heavy throughout. V.x.
ports of that product wero seriously di
minished, compared with a vear nan.
Other provisions, although weak at first
on account ot a setback in the hog mar
ket, were nflerward restored by means
of a moderate show of support.

heavy grades, making their first bids at
figure that looked to be all of 10c lower.
Salesmen started out offering their best

Tho author, when he wroto that line In
nil probability meant It as a burlesque,
nnd never suspected that It would ever
hocomo a reality, even In part
Hut como true It did, " nevertheless,
Down at the Union depot last night whllo
a special Rock Island train from Denver,
bound for New York, was changing engine
or something, ltnllnn opera singers were
certainly snapping their fingers, as they
danced to the st-ral-n ot their own (hold
this note professor) ba-aa-aa-fled ra-nn-nse.
It was tho special Rock Island train
that was bringing the defunct Canadian
Opera company which smashed In Denver
last week, back to Uroadway.
(iriilti In Ilrlltiar.
On that train wcro musical geniuses
whoso very names mako phonograph
records leap nnd bound in price. On the
train also wcro something like sixty red
lipped, black eyed, rosy cheeked, black
haired llttlo Italian chorister whose very
charm and good looks composed tho only
cheerfulness on that snd, and train. In
fact, few person In Omaha knew th
opera singers wero coming through, and
II was when a reporter who hap
pened to be at the depot saw tho galaxv
of femlnlno charm through a day conch
window ho said to himself; "Mo for it,
and ho entered to glvo tho layout tho
onco over, that he Incidentally grabbed
for himself a yarn of these dimensions,
This much, however, Is only digression,
and odds to Omnhn'fl misers nt losing thf
coiiccrt so hero tho Irrelevancy ceases,
Only a few ot tho member of the com
pany could talk English.
Swear In Itnir Time.
When Aaldo Jaccla, tho llttfo musical
director, was approached for his version
of the fracas that led to tho smash in
Denver ho worked himself Into a freny
"Ooo-o-oo! Moun-xoo! ow enn I told It
you wnt ocx linppcn u by thorn Den
vnlre," ho excitedly gesticulated. "Thoso
Dunstan Collin wit them Den-valre man-ag-e-mont!
Oh, wnlr 1 zo word to

Oh! Oo-oo-oo! Walr can I find word to
say Wat ecz thoso dosplcablo once!"
Illnme n Rival Company.
Mr. Agide Jaccla, howovor, did not
wneto any tlmo In finding words. Ho
chucked tho English Into tho discard, but
what ho said In his native tonguo un
doubtedly mado the ear's ot tho Pcnvcr
management. Advnnco Manager Collins,
and several other persons, burn.
Afterward, Jaccla said that tho Chi
cago Oratid Opora company is largely to
bfamo for tho difficulties which ttir
rounded tho Canadian company duriuti
tho tour. Collin wa accusod of belli;
coerced by tho Chicago company; wuii
accused of routing tho Canadian company
so a to mako things bad for them; lus
homo being In Chicago, hi secret con
nectlon with "tho rival could easily he
fathomed by many pf the enraged artist.
Slezalc camo In for a session on the urid
ine, because ho got mad and llckoJ somx
policemen and left the company to shoul
der tho consequences, and tha nnnvn
representative of the Company, upon th
discovery that ho was n brother-in-law
of Collins, also came in for a soislou.
And so It wont.

wero told that Luclua Pryor, although
rich In experiences a a grand open
manager, was paying off his obligation
with tho savings of a llfetimo bocauao
or tho opera company' difficulties. Tha
two songbirds Immediately bocama
dronched In tears.
"Convey to Mr. Pryor our sympathies,"
they said In chorus. "Tell him that if
ho can arrange for a concert wo will slng
tor him that he may recoup hi losses."
The train started to move and thi
